I Want to Be a Clone (EP) (1983)

Updated: Mar 2

I Want to Be a Clone is the title of the debut extended play (EP) by new wave and post-punk influenced Christian musician Steve Taylor. It was released in 1983 on Sparrow Records. As in later works, the singer-songwriter mixed criticism of general secular society, for things such as empty materialism and selfishness, with criticism of Christian church organizations, for things such as muddying the gospel message for marketing. Jonathan David Brown produced the six-song project. The title song was released to Christian Rock radio as the lead single and climbed to the Top 5. The cassette tape version features all six songs on both sides.

The entire EP can be found on the CD version of his 1988 compilation album The Best We Could Find (+3 That Never Escaped).
